core vs linux server

    General discussion

  • can the Server Core be as lean and mean as Linux Server in that it eats minimal resources in favor of the hypervisor?

    I am considering this approach for running several virtual servers

    I used Linux for years simply as I could not afford Windows server. Worse Server was way behind the curve. Today I have nominally been able to achieve a substantial fraction of the same functionality

    still learning how to get PHP working 100% but its OK with simple stuff now

    I should mention that Linux server is command line only. Its not DOS compatible, its all different. I have to pause and look at the prompt for the console to make sure I use the right command set.

    anyway the core lean?
